6.6 went smoothly - one minor thing

I've just finished building LFS 6.6 on a slackware 13.0 32bit host and even though it was my first attempt at LFS it all went amazingly smoothly and I learned loads. A huge thanks to the authors of the LFS book!

The only minor issue is that I got to sec 9.2 "Get Counted" and when I go here and try and register I get this response:

You entered: 6.6
This does not match the expected regular expression for a First LFS Version.
Please try again.

It appears to do that to everyone. I simply set the distro to 1.x and got counted. I then tried again with the same login name and tried again for 6.6 and got the same result. It appears to be a fallacy in their setup. Enter a the 1.x and get counted - and as I did drop then tried to send them a note - but the link produces a page error. At least I'm counted.
